I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! is returning to screens on Sunday 15 November.

Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly will once again host the hit ITV show as it celebrates its 20th series.

However, it's all change for the show as — due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic — it will not be filmed in Australia for the first time ever.

Instead, the celebrities will be headed to Gwrych Castle in Wales where they will battle it out to be crowned the first ever King or Queen of the Castle.

Jacqueline Jossa was victorious in the show's most recent series, but who is hoping to take over the throne?

Meet this year's rumoured line-up below…

Mo Farah

Four-time gold medallist Mo Farah is said to have been inspired by former sprinter Linford Christie when he took to the jungle in 2010.

A source told The Sun: "Mo's been a big fan of the show for years and was just waiting for the right time in his career to do it."

It was later reported that Mo will be the show's highest paid star this year, scooping a whopping £300,000 for his participation.

AJ Pritchard

AJ Pritchard sparked rumours he'd be swapping the ballroom for the great outdoors when he quit Strictly Come Dancing earlier this year.

The 26 year old's signing to the show was the reported last month, when an insider told MailOnline: "It was always his aim to do more TV work after leaving Strictly and there's no bigger challenge than I'm A Celeb.

"He's an early riser, into his fitness and a dedicated person – he hopes being part of camp will give viewers the chance to get to know him better.

"The only downside is he won't be taking part with brother Curtis, who he's really enjoyed working with since lockdown."

Giovanna Fletcher

Mummy blogger Giovanna Fletcher, 35, is thought to be one of the last celebrity to sign up for the show, with her inclusion only being reported this week.

A source told The Sun: "Giovanna is a brilliant signing. She's incredibly popular on Instagram with mums and has over 1.3million followers.

"She's moved in famous circles for years. Not only is she best pals with Emma Willis but she's close to royalty, married to a boyband star and her brother is Mario Falcone from TOWIE. She's decided the time is right to embrace the limelight."

Beverley Callard

Coronation Street star Beverley Callard was the first name rumoured for the show with the 63 year old's name being put into the ring back in April.

An insider told Mirror Online at the time that ITV bosses were "thrilled when Bev said yes."

She was forced to take time out from the hit soap after a botched hip operation left her needing to learn to walk again.

Vernon Kay

Tess Daly's husband Vernon Kay, 46, is said to have struck a deal with bosses in July, expected to be receiving £150,000 for signing up.

A source told The Mirror: "Everyone’s so pleased to have Vernon on board.

"He's a lovely guy, full of down-to-earth northern charm and perfect for the show."

Shane Richie

Ex-EastEnders star Shane Richie, 56, was another late signing for the show after his spell in pantomime was cancelled.

An insider told The Sun: "ITV have always wanted Shane for the jungle but with panto not happening this year and other work opportunities less likely, he decided this was the time to take the plunge.

"Going to North Wales is less of a huge commitment than flying halfway across the world, too, so he jumped at the chance.

"He's already being talked about by production as an early favourite as he's such a likeable bloke and known to millions of soap fans."

Jessica Plummer

Jessica Plummer, 28, is another former EastEnders star swapping Walford for Wales after her character Chantelle Atkins was killed off in September.

A source told The Sun of the former Neon Jungle singer: "Soap stars always do well in the show. Just look at Jessica's Enders' predecessor Jacqueline Jossa last year.

"Bosses are delighted to be able to convince her to take part. It's a great move for both parties as she's just left the soap and this is a great opportunity for her personality to be shown to millions.

"She hopes it will be a real stepping stone for her career."

Victoria Derbyshire

Victoria Derbyshire, 52, signed up for the hit ITV show after her eponymous BBC morning show was axed earlier this year.

"Victoria is always game for a challenge so when she was approached for I'm A Celebrity she jumped at the chance," an insider told The Sun.

"It's always something she's wanted to do but because of her family she's never wanted to fly to Australia and be away from them for so long.

"When the show moved to Wales and the opportunity came up, she didn't want to look a gift horse in the mouth so said yes straight away."

Russell Watson

Russell Watson was a surprise signing for the show when he was spotted arriving at a secret photoshoot alongside other rumoured stars.

Although the opera singer tried to disguise himself by wearing a face covering, the tell tale sign was a suit bag with the 53 year old's name emblazoned on it.

Ruthie Henshall

West End star and Prince Edward's ex-girlfriend Ruthie Henshall, 53, is also thought to be seen in isolation ahead of joining the camp next week.

A source told The Sun: "Ruthie is a particularly exciting signing for I'm A Celebrity as viewers will want to see if she divulges any gossip on her relationship with Prince Edward.

"They'll be hoping she lets slip some juicy information on her posh ex during cosy, intimate chats round the campfire."

Hollie Arnold

Paralympian Hollie Arnold, 26, is believed to have signed up after this year's Tokyo games were postponed until 2021.

She was seen alongside Ruthie, Russell and Victoria at the top secret photoshoot in London last month.

Jordan North

The final celebrity to sign up for the show is Radio 1 DJ Jordan North.

The 30 year old is nicknamed "the supply teacher" as he was the main cover for Scott Mills and Nick Grimshaw before landing his own weekend show in September.

He is also the host of popular podcast Help I Sexted My Boss alongside with pal William Hanson.

The full line-up will be confirmed on I'm A Celebrity: A Jungle Story on Sunday at 9pm on ITV before the new series of I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! kicks off on 15 November at 9pm on ITV.
